NEW YORK CITY April 24th
I lost my one-year post-graduate US work VISA and therefore my job. Until recently I was paid to sort and classify YouTube videos for the legal department of a major entertainment corporation that is preparing an enormous copyright lawsuit against YouTube.
I watched and re-watched ripped and compressed episodes of South Park.
I learned to tell the difference between all the Star Trek movies by their production design and cast.
I planted for two years in college. I thought my last year would be my last year: that was in 2005. I was 22, and moved to New York City the year after. I am 25 now. I have lived in New York for three years, have what some would call a life here, with some good friends and a nice girlfriend. I write this primarily for them, so that they may understand where I am and what I am doing while I’m gone.
I will return in the fall.
